In Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Shapeshifters, a new four-issue anthology arriving in March 2022, another anthology of comics by four different sets of creative teams will be unveiled. The series will be published by BOOM! Studios imprint Archaia, and The Beat has your first look at the creative teams on the title today!

The Storyteller: Shapeshifters

The first issue in the four-issue Shapeshifters series will be by Andre R. Frattino, Nori Retherford, Kieran Quigley, and Jim Campbell, and will offer a new take on the Celtic myth known as the Children of Lir.

In the myth of the Children of Lir, a magic user named Dain attempts to steal the throne from his brother-in-law, Lit, by turning Lit’s children into swans. Although the eldest child, Fionna, vows to break the curse, they nevertheless spend a thousand years in the avian forms.

Subsequent creative teams will include Darcie Little Badger, Alexandra Fastovets, James Fenner, Em Niwa, Deron Bennett, and Bruka Jones.

And the series will feature main covers by del Mundo and variant covers by Mateus Manhanini.
